Nominated in 2018 for a JUNO Award, recipient of the Stingray Rising Star Award, and nominee at the Canadian Folk Music Awards along with Québec’s ADISQ awards, Briga’s music is a reflection of her fragmented identity. Her songs are half instrumental, half written in French and English, of which all are accompanied by her fervent violin firmly rooted in eastern European and Romani folk sounds learned from the days her father played the piano to put the children to sleep.

Her body of work includes three albums (Diaspora, Turbo Folk Stories, and Wake), and numerous performances across Canada, the United States, and Europe. Her unique sound is described as being delivered with a Turbo Folk edge, wrapped up in heavy Balkan & Moroccan grooves, all wrapped up with her wailing violin and sweet voice. She has been touring as a trio (violin, bass/accordion & percussion) her fourth CD came out in spring 2017, singing in french, english and albanian.

A new album is in the works and will be released in 2020.

Briga is a Montreal based artist that
writes fascinatingly original, eclectic,
biting Balkan Flavoured Songs.

— New York Music Daily
Briga’s music is sung, funky, improvised, as
intimate as biting, a touch free, dirty, retro…
and damn good.
